swiss excellence in hotel and tourism management education

Switzerland lies in the heart of Western Europe. It borders

Germany in the north, Austria and Liechtenstein in the east,

Italy in the south and France in the west. Switzerland is a

small, mountainous country, covering a part of the central

Alps and the northern pre-Alps. With its mountains and hills,

rivers and lakes, Switzerland boasts a diverse landscape

despite measuring only 220 kilometres (137 miles) from

north to south and 350 kilometres (217 miles) from west

to east. The Jura, the Plateau and the Alps form the three

main geographic regions of the country.

Switzerland’s political and economic system has brought

decades of stability and provides a high quality of life

and a secure future. This stability is also the reason why

international organisations such as the International

Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations

(UN), foreign corporations and international forums such

as the World Economic Forum (WEF) value Switzerland as

a secure and stable base and by doing so have made it an

international hub.

The Swiss economy is not based on mass production, but

rather on the development and production of individual

goods of high quality. Switzerland is dependent on a

highly qualified and well-educated workforce. A good

education system is therefore the basis for the international

competitiveness of the Swiss economy.







Switzerland has an international reputation as a provider

of world class education. In particular, Swiss Hotel

management programmes are recognised by industry as

being of exceptional quality. Switzerland enjoys a long

standing tradition and reputation for educational excellence.
